Apple censors a dictionary

Geoffrey.landis writes "I'm sure somebody has already reported this, but since Slashdot's interface doesn't tell you whether a story has been submitted by somebody else until you waste your time and fill in their whole form and type in the whole story-- at which point it tells you "sorry, that url has already been submitted, you wasted your time--here goes.

John Gruber at Daringfireball.net points to the latest example of an iPhone application being stymied by Apple's App Store approval process. In this case, it's a dictionary app called Ninjawords (so called because ninjas are "smart, accurate, and really fast") that was rejected three times over the course of two months, mostly because "objectionable" words could be looked up and found in the dictionary's search function, Gruber reported. PCWorld also reports the story."
